October 20th Overnight Law Enforcement & Fire/Medical wrap up


A little bit more activity in Douglas County this morning but, still really pretty quiet.

Police conducted about the usual number of vehicle stops. A Douglas County Deputy was dispatched to assist a Johnson County Sheriff's Deputy on a traffic stop. The stop was on westbound K-10 and the Johnson County Deputy advised that the driver was possibly intoxicated. The deputies administered field sobriety tests and it was determined that the driver was "sleepy" and not intoxicated.

Back in Lawrence, Officers handled a few noise complaints, disturbances and responded with LDCFM on several medical related calls. None of the activity, that I heard, resulted in any serious injuries. Police also responded on a non injury accident in the 2200 block of Iowa Street around 1:20 a.m..

In case you have not already heard about it, the Occupy Lawrence group has been told, by the City Attorney, that they must leave South Park by Thursday night. The LJWorld Story, link here, says "about 20 members of the Occupy Lawrence group on Wednesday night indicated that they plan to begin a campaign of civil disobedience by defying a city order to stop camping in South Park."

The LJWorld and Operation 100 News, on Twitter, will be monitoring the activity to come later tonight.

The week long (weather permitting) construction project, near the roundabout at Harvard and Monterey Way continues today. Learn more about this project here.
